Independence Day

     Happy July 4th everybody who knows one of America's most famous holidays! For those of you who live in Australia and Asia and whatnot, July 4th is also called Independence Day. As far as I know, there was this ruler who was really strict and mean. These guys (some of whom became future presidents) wrote a letter called the Declaration of Independence. Later they had freedom blah blah blah and our country is free! Gorgeous freedom! July 4th is the day the Declaration was turned in or finished. I'm not a history person. :P
     I've been on Animal Jam all day, going on my best friend's account and basking in the glory of being a member. I went to the Freedom Party, got my own personal animals, bought a den, etc... Then I went to the Heatwave party and played around. This happened.
     Look at the left wing. It's cut off! There's a weird frame around the eagle that cuts off any eagle body parts. How painful! But now I know how to catch fish. :D
     I was exploring the Crystal Palace and I found these cool, secluded areas. They are good spots for eagles to roleplay or just have a private party... even if people are in your den! Here are the spots.

Infinite Personalities

     In my About Me page, it says my personality changes to my environment. If I'm in front of a strict teacher, I am nervous and, you know, do the obvious thing. Around perverts I become a person that talks like a pervert(sadly) if I'm familiar with them. Around angry people I get annoyed and try to keep my cool. Now that I think about it, it's not too different from pretty much everybody. However, I don't really have a set personality. I sort of do, but it changes constantly, even when I'm talking to the same person. I guess I made that up to not have to think about who I am. :T
     Anyone watch anime? If you do, have you ever watched Shugo Chara? It's all about "being who you want to be" and stuff. That's the very very general idea, but there are these things called Guardian Characters. They're basically a mini who-you-want-to-be and you can transform into a mix between your Guardian Character and you. It lets you do things you never could do before, etc etc. It sounds boring in my description, but it's a pretty good anime. Here's a picture of a Guardian Character.
     Animation is doing well in summer school. We were doing practice. The thing is, I was holding up the plushies in the air so you could see my arm in the photos. It just looks like I'm carrying them. Now, if I had string, that would be a different story...
     I'm trying to refrain from going too deep into Wrapped in Sorthas because it's not exciting enough. There needs to be some secrets that are revealed later, or mini spoilers about an exciting future, etc etc. Like in Coraline when the other mother says, "Mirrors are never to be trusted." Sorry for the spoiler! I had no other example. I might be overreacting since this is the first story I've ever written that actually makes sense. It might as well be a fairy tale if I didn't want to try so hard.
     I don't get why people call others off for trying hard. I mean, what's wrong with trying hard? It just means you want to accomplish your goal. Maybe the goal is really easy and you don't need to waste effort needed for the future, but still. :P
     Keep having a wonderful summer! :D
(I said the same thing as last time ;-;)

Preparations for July 4th AAH BEETLE

     I'm not one of those people who celebrate holidays enthusiastically, but my neighborhood sure is. Every night ever since a month ago, I would hear a very loud boom that would scare me off of my chair. Of course I don't really fall off, but it startled me. However, it would sound near the ground instead of a firework exploding in the air. There might be "boom" things that go on the ground. #idontevenfirework
     Yeah. I've been playing some old games more often, like Animal Jam. I just went on Club Penguin a day or two ago. It's so crowded! I can't move anywhere without clicking a name. :P
     Today I went to a university. It's HUGE! There are probably 10-15 buildings, and they're still building more. There's an art center or something that'll finish next fall in 2015. There are about 2-3 places to chill and hang out, with beautiful furniture and a fireplace in one of the rooms. They even scientifically proved the chairs to be comfortable enough so you can focus, but not enough that you'll fall asleep. I'd much rather fall asleep, unless I have a lot of homework.
     Short post, small mind, few thoughts. I just finished Chapter 3 of Wrapped in Sorthas, expect quite a few more!
     I was just looking over the blog, checking to see if I needed to fix anything when all of a sudden this eerie buzzing noise came from the kitchen. I panicked and thought that there was somebody coming with a weapon when a HUGE beetle burst out. I could do nothing but make a sound that was a cross between a whimper and a scream. My mom, who was napping next to me, panicked and thought somebody broke in. My brother came in and thought I was panicking because of a fly. Then he saw it and was absolutely disgusted. He asked my mom to kill it. "Oh, that's so nasty! Oh my god.."
     God, the beetle scared the living daylights out of me. It freaked me out. It's deeper than a fly buzz, but resonates more as well. It gives me shivers when I hear it, for some reason. Here's a tip: never leave your backdoor (that has a hole in it) open at night. Even if you don't have air conditioning (like me) and you're really hot, do not. Unless it doesn't have a hole. Then you're fine.
